Thank You Dad

Thank you Dad.

Thank you for your deep deep love.

For always making me feel so special and loved.

For teaching me to pass on that love to my own children.

I could not have felt more loved.

 

Thank you Dad.

Thank you for sharing with me your love of music and poetry.

For reading to me at bedtime and encouraging my love of books.

For instilling in me the love of words and rhyme.

So passionately.

 

Thank you Dad.

Thank you for teaching me how to be honest, caring and kind.

Thank you for caring.

Thank you for your honesty. Your morals and your wisdom.

I am proud to carry them with me always.

 

Thank you Dad.

Thank you for encouraging my talents.

For the joy of dance, music and theatre.

For your passion and encouragement.

Your never ending support.

 

Thank you Dad.

Thank you for teaching me tenacity.

For showing me determination and drive.

For showing me that I can do anything I put my mind to.

For teaching me to never give up.

 

Thank you Dad.

For your love of nature.

All things, great and small.

For encouraging me to take notice of the beauty and joy in the world around us.

The beauty of a single rose.

 

Thank you Dad.

Thank you for all the fun.

For the donkey rides and Sunday swims, nature walks and endless knowledge.

The songs you sang, the jokes you told.

The times you made me laugh.

 

Thank you Dad.

Thank you for everything you gave this world.

For your bravery through your own struggles.

For your strength through sad and difficult times.

For making the world a better place.

 

Thank you for being my dad.
